Valentino’s largest global store opens in New York
Located within the former Takashimaya department store at 693 Fifth Avenue, the new Valentino flagship store in New York city covers 20,000 sqf and is spread over three floors. While the first two floors showcase accessories and women’s clothing, the third floor features men’s clothing and accessories.
The store features the Valentino Garavani accessories line which includes the new Camubutterfly pieces and Zodiac finger clutches – exclusive to the Fifth Avenue store. The new Valentino flagship store will offer a made-to-measure denim program, as well as a selection of men’s couture outerwear.
Valentino creative directors Pierpaolo Piccoli and Maria Grazia Chiuri worked with David Chipperfield Architects to redesign the John Burgee and Philip Johnson-designed building, one of the highlights of the new store being the dramatic facade with the top tiers composed of black steel and aluminum and the lower part connected by vertical brass bars that incorporate a lantern, clock, and the Valentino logo. Interiors feature gray Venetian terrazzo marble, and furniture made from leather, wood and brass.
